This fullness is filled with fullness.
Fullness is born from fullness.
Fullness fills fullness.
In fullness, fullness is ever rested.
This collection of poems attempts to unlock the wisdom of our ancient seers for the benefit of the lay folk, often eulogized for their resilience in the face of depredations of time, but with no one to turn to―not even the gods―for succor, mercy, and redemption, and far removed from expensive and time-consuming modern psychiatric intervention. It has nothing to do with religion or rituals; nothing to do with an exclusive or an exclusivist lifestyle. Rather, these poems seek to help us cope with the circumstances that confront us on our eventful walk through life.
In Shadows of the Fragmented Moon, each poem has a hidden and unexplored facet of human trait that needs confronting to clear the path of ill-informed illusions. For, as the seers have claimed down the ages, the mind is only an aggregate of desires and nothing else. We humans are a conglomerate of our emotions and reason . . . without purpose, without a second chance.
Understanding this one truth alone sets us free.
